The last few days
I've been to a number of streams in the last few days and have found the water levels to be ok and the fish reasonably active. We could still use more rain, but at least we haven't already reached mid-summer conditions. Lately cream-colored dry flies have been producing, patterns like the parachute sulphur, Usual and Bomber. Emergers have also been productive, such as Matt's sulphur emerger. When these patterns have failed, the good old Picket Pin has provided some success. The only negative has been the temperature and humidity. I am really not a summer person and struggle with hot weather.
